The arrival of October brings another month of reading to an end. September was a pretty busy month, but I was determined to squeeze in plenty of reading time. After all, I am still working on my enormous TBR. In two years, I have managed to shrink it quite a bit. Reading is one of my favorite things to do, it’s an escape, a way to be entertained, and allows me to learn something new. As with every month, I love to share what I read and how I felt about those books. Perhaps seeing what I have been reading will inspire you to pickRead More →

The arrival of September has brought another month of reading to an end. As an avid reader, I always look forward to sinking into a good book – though not everything I read ends up falling into that category. Reading is my favorite hobby, a way to escape the world or learn something new. Over the years, my TBR grew to an enormous amount. But with dedicating, a bit of purging, and limiting new purchases I have put a significant dent in it. Every month, I read as much as I can and love to share my thoughts on those books.

Another month of reading has come to an end.

After two years of reading my own books, it has shrunk quite a bit. Another part I enjoy is sharing what books I read. Not only doesRead More →

With the arrival of July, it’s time to take a moment to look back at all the reading I did in June. Reading is my go-to hobby.

And over the first year, I was able to reduce it quite a bit. After another year of focused reading, my TBR shrunk once again. Now it is becoming a more manageable size. As with every month, I like to share whatRead More →

Another month of reading has come to an end. January is the month where readers often set goals of how many books they want to read in the year.

With every month that passes and every book read, I have managed to take my TBR from an overwhelming pile of books to something far more manageable.

With the arrival of January, it’s time to take a moment and look back at the books I read in December. This month was filled with holiday preparation, the first few heavy snowfalls of winter, and that overwhelming desire for the year to be over.

However, this month I found myself either not feeling like reading or simply not setting aside the time each day. Despite this, I was able to squeeze in just enough reading to hit that goal. Doing so helped toRead More →
